Today’s BGM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyjQFdeFox8 (Seriously, this is today’s BGM since it keeps on playing in USJ :D)

Sooo~~ πŸ˜€ Today I’m having a total fun! πŸ˜€ Today I’m having a date trip with Ryu to Universal Studio Japan. I don’t know why, but he suddenly ask me if I want to go to USJ today. So I guess.. Why not? We already have the annual pass.. So we only need to buy the train ticket to Osaka.. πŸ˜€ And to add more reason to go there, there’s this 4 new time limited attraction ([Evangelion – The Real 4D], [Attack of Titan – The Real], [Bio Hazard – The Escape], and [Monster Hunter]) on USJ! πŸ˜€ So LET’S GO! \(=w=)/ Get ready for a long post and a lot of pictures! :p

We arrived at USJ a bit late than usual.. Since it took around 1.5 hour from my house to USJ.. We arrived around 11 or so.. I forgot.. And the first thing we do when we enter USJ, is of course, rushing to Harry Potter special entrance ticket. Some might not know, but to enter Wizarding World of Harry Potter we need special time ticket, which has the specific time when we can enter that area. πŸ˜€ But we can also buy it using special express pass (which cost more money.. :p So a big no for me..)

But unfortunately, when we enter USJ’s gate, one of the staff asked me for some questioner.. Well.. Owkay.. She said it will only take 5 minutes, so why not help. πŸ™‚ And luckily, we got gifts from the questioner staff! πŸ˜€ A small pink pen! πŸ™‚ Well, pink is always my favorite color. :p

We rushed to the Harry Potter time ticket machine, and luckily we still got ticket to enter. On come cases, they didn’t give the tickets if it’s late already when it’s too crowded. 😦 So.. We already got the time ticket to enter the Harry Potter area during 14.10 to 13.50.. So what’s next? :/

Ryu suddenly asked if Evangelion 4D already starts since people already get in line. I said it’s impossible, since the schedule said it will start on 1 PM. But, due to uncertainty, we decided to check it. And just as he said, peopleΒ already lining there. The sign written says that it will took 120 minutes before we can enter. With this situation.. I guess we better get in line. And so we did..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

See? These are the line :O A lot of people there… The only regret is.. We don’t bring any food while lining for 2 hours… |||Orz Seeing everyone bring food and drinks while hungry sure is something.. ( ;A; )

But when we enter the attraction, I feel like the waiting is so worth it! πŸ˜€ What is happening inside? Well, it’s for you to found out. πŸ˜› I don’t want to give spoilers or such.. But trust me, it’s fun! πŸ˜€ (Well one of the happiest moment is when I can see Gendou Hikari from near and hear him saying “Mondai ha arimasen”! His famous quote! XD) Finished the attraction, still with Eva hype, we decided to buy some popcorn. πŸ˜€ They had it on Eva themed booth! πŸ˜€ And even the package for the popcorn also Eva themed. You can choose the normal one (which we choose) or the diamond shaped (if I’m not mistaken it’s one of the ‘angel’s shape in Eva). The price, of course, is different. |||Orz

So, we still have some time for Harry Potter! We decided to take a look at Cool Japan Area.. πŸ˜€ Which they say there’s the other 3 new attraction. πŸ˜€ Here’s the gate~ πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And apparently to enter [Bio Hazard – The Escape] you still need to buy some tickets (if I’m not mistaken)… It’s like… 3,000 yen? Or I’m mistaken? :/ Well, I won’t enter anyway.. I hate zombies and afraid if I might ended up kicking one of the talents there due to frightened… :p Oh! I forgot! To enter [Attack of Titan – The Real], you also need special tickets. We must pay extra Β or not, I don’t know. :/ (Well.. It will be very cruel if te customer really need to pay more.. Since to enter USJ, they already pay like 7,000 yen?)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Ah! One of interesting part in USJ is the themed food stall! πŸ˜€ They usually sell food with some attraction themed. And this time they even make special themed stalls for this Cool Japan Area. πŸ˜€ Here’s the one for Attack of Titan πŸ˜€ There’s also one for the others.. One of the interesting food stall is the [Monster Hunter] one.. Since there’s this big steak with bone like those in games.. But the price is a bit too high for our wallet.. So we pass.. (2,100 yen!!) |||Orz

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

What if you’re not into some food? Why not seeing two titans having fight? :p Well I’m not into Attack of Titan.. But this one is interesting and surely a must take picture spot. πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Or you want something look more interesting? Why not take a picture almost getting eaten by some titan? πŸ˜€ This one is interesting for us to watch.. Not the line or the people who are almost being eaten.. But the staffs.. They jump around like trying helping the customers while taking picture. πŸ˜€ Fufufu..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So… Since we still have some time, we decided to take a look on [Monster Hunter]’s exhibition. Getting inside the Monster Hunter world! Yei! πŸ˜€ Here are some pics I took inside (not all, since it might spoil the fun don’t you think? :p)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAΒ OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Β OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And outside there’s a game stand where you can get Airou (I want one.. But don’t bring that much money… (._. Β ) Hiks..) and place where you can play Monster Hunter Time Attack together with others. πŸ˜€ Who knows you might get some new friends here~! πŸ˜‰

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Oh! Don’t forget there’s one of the monster outside who wants to take a picture with you. πŸ˜€OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s 14.20! Time to enter the wizard world! \(=w=)/ And what’s our first catch in Harry Potter world? Of course! None other than BUTTERBEER! πŸ˜€ Beverage of the wizards which you can only get on the wizard world. πŸ˜‰

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

See how Ryu drink his Butterbeer until the last sip? :p That’s how good it taste. πŸ˜€ Well.. We’re wizards after all, so it will be taste good for both of us. I don’t know about Muggle’s bud-taste, but I think they’ll definitely like it too. πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This time, we’re planning on not taking any rides, instead we want to watch the performance here. We’ve been here like many times, but we never get the chance to watch [Frog Choir] or [Triwizard Spirit Rally]. πŸ˜€ So this time, we want to take our time and just watch the street performance. πŸ˜€

The first one to show is the [Frog Choir]. πŸ˜€ The choir group consists of 1 students from each housesΒ and the conductor is a student from Gryffindor. πŸ˜€ It’s awesome! πŸ˜€ I love their performance! They even role-play sometime, which makes me laugh. πŸ™‚

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The next one to show is [Triwizard Spirit Rally]. YEAH! I can’t wait to see students from Beauxbatons and Durmstrang compete! πŸ˜€ It’s like saying it’s girls vs boys! Hahaha.. πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, we’re ready to watch the show! But too bad.. Suddenly it rains.. And the performance is canceled… ( ;A; ) Whyyyyy???!!! |||Orz

The next show is still 2 hours, so we decided to wait while eat first. We haven’t had any lunch. :/ We decided to eat at The Three Broomsticks. πŸ˜€ And to help the customers, they even make some replica of the menu πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And I love the atmosphere. It’s really like we’re entering the real Three Broomsticks πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAΒ OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This time we order different menu than usual. We ordered [Sheperd’s Pie with Salad], [Fish and Chips], and Hot Butterbeer. I wonder how the Butterbeer taste.. :/ Well.. Unfortunately, it taste just nice. πŸ˜€ But a bit different with the cold one which has soda in it, this one is more like hot spiced drink. πŸ˜€ And with a tingling cinnamon sensation. :9 Which I love! Yep, I love cinnamon’s taste. πŸ˜‰

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAΒ Β OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Okay, we’re stuffed! Now what’s next? πŸ˜€ Why not a walk inside the castle of Hogwarts? πŸ˜€ And so that’s we’re doing. πŸ˜€ Seeing around the school~ πŸ˜€ (Oh, while we’re on the way to the castle, I realized the line for the attraction was soooo long. It was even written that it will took 3 hours to wait.. Crazy huh?) These are some pics from the castle. πŸ˜€ Next time, I’ll make sure to bring my DSLR (I only bring pocket camera this time). :p

Finally! After finished walking inside the castle, it’s time for the [Triwizard Spirit Rally]. πŸ˜€ Crossing finger! XO

And yeah! The show begins! πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Starting with performances from Durmstrang students. πŸ˜€ Macho macho much! XD

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Then continued with the elegant Beauxbatons students. πŸ˜€ So beautiful and makes you want to say “Ahhh~” πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAΒ  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is indeed worth to watch. πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So.. What else to do while in Harry Potter area when you’re finished what you want to do?

Take pictures of course! πŸ˜€ The scenery and the buildings are very detail, and you’ll feel like you’re at Hogsmeade! πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAΒ OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAΒ OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Or why not taking picture of yourself like I do.. :p Tehehe… πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And with that, our day is wrapped up.. Not. You can see it on the picture bellow…

Nope, this is not an entrance to some attraction or performance, or even concert. Nope. This is the line for buying train tickets on the station. It’s lining like forever.. It took us around 30 minutes or so just to get into the ticketing machine. Crazy huh? :/ Thank God we can still managed to get into the Rapid Express Hankyu train to Kyoto. :O That’s so tiring…

As usual, and as I said before, I’m an Elmo dead fan. So of course although I don’t have that much money today, I’ll keep up some to buy some Elmo stuffs. πŸ˜€ Well, I bought two handphone straps. πŸ˜€ While the other one is tote bag I got from a lottery. :p So with 600 yen, we can take a lottery ticket and got merchandise based on what’s written. When I first see the list of the merchandise, I want the tote bag soooo bad! I even pray for it. I decided to take the lottery twice (since it’s cheaper that way :p), and you know what? I ended up got two Elmo tote bag. XD I guess I pray too strong for the bag. πŸ˜€

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAΒ Β OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also bought some [Monster Hunter] stickers for my diary. πŸ˜€ Might use them when the time is right. πŸ˜‰

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So that’s the run-down for my date with Ryu today. πŸ˜€ Hope you have a nice day too today, since I did. πŸ™‚

Jya~ne! πŸ˜€

 

Sincerely, Bena nDR

      Hello πŸ˜€
      If I’m not mistaken, it indeed shows every 2 hours. :/ But for more precise, it usually depends on the day and the weather. πŸ™‚
      They usually have the schedule on the entrance gate of USJ, you can check it there. πŸ˜€ Hope this helps.
